Manual or mechanical, Chemical and Enzyme are the three exfoliating categories.

Benefits of exfoliating the skin:

  • Reveal fresh, healthy new skin. Your skin's turn-over or replacement cells slow down with age, by kicking off old cells your body replaces them at a faster rate … just like when you were younger ... yes, now you can look younger!
  • Polish your skin for a gorgeous luster, people ask “Did you just have a facial?”.
  • Remove old surface cells blocking the absorption of your other skin care products.
  • Use at least 1-2 times weekly on your face and body.

A topical exfoliating product applied to your skin which is manually moved across the surface with your fingers or applicator forcing dead cells off the surface. A loufah is an example, even a washcloth is a manual exfoliator for all skin types.

  • Ingredients such as, crushed irregular shaped oyster shells, seeds, apricot pits, or any inexpensive or exotic "natural" or "unnatural" material suiting a product line. In extreme over use with abrasive scrubs the jagged granules can cause microscopic lacerations on the surface, sometimes leading to a tough feel as your body forms microscopic calluses against the constant abrasion.
  • We use round micro beads or poly spheres ... so much gentler on your skin, the smaller the bead or sphere the kinder to your skin.
  • Some products use paraffin or wax mixed with water and oil, and are moved across the surface with your fingers. The water evaporates allowing dead cells to adhere to the wax forming small balls of debris, and then brushed off your skin.
  • Manual exfoliators are not for severe acne, fragile skin, broken capillaries called telangiectasis (tel-an-gi-ec-ta-sis), or any skin type and condition that can't tolerate pressure or friction.
